It’s always so exciting when you can support your friends in their own artistic business ventures…and because we loooove to support and talk about how incredible our friends are, we showed up to the Edmonton Art Walk on Whyte Avenue this weekend. Here are a few pics we stole of our friends in action.
Joel and Crystal are awesome. Let’s just throw that out there. They are fun-loving, adventure-seeking, all-around good people who travel the world together and share their love with their friends and family. And we are so blessed that we fell into their “friend” category a few years back.
Down to the nitty gritty, we had full-day coverage for these two, starting as they finalized their hair, makeup (in Crystal’s case only, haha), and of course their wedding outfits! Crystal’s gown had layers upon layers of gorgeous fabric, and it was amplified by the simple outdoor ceremony they held at Fort Edmonton Park.
After the ceremony, we sped through the formals (with Rachel playing the role of horse whisperer) and headed over to the reception at one of the Fort’s awesome halls. The reception hosted some awesome details, including popcorn and cotton candy for the adults – ahem, for the kids, yes, the kids – a giant tier of cupcakes, and some great personalized Jones soda bottles! With all the details looked after, the guests were free to party well into the warm summer night.
Thanks again, for choosing us to share in your day’s beauty and joy. We love you!
Here’s a look at a few of our favourites from their epic day.

What is it about engagment shoots that always courts summer storms? We barely made it through this session when the sky just erupted in lightning, thunder, rain and wind. Beautiful light for great sky shots, but we were still happy to be driving home in warm and dry vehicles.
Darryl and Stefanie melted our hearts. They are two of the most beautiful individuals (inside and out), and if you can judge based on who they surround themselves with on their wedding day, they have some of the best family and friends because of who they are. Their bridal party was up for anything, and didn’t bat an eye as we sent them on rides that spun them every which way.
We hit up the John Janzen Nature Centre and Fort Edmonton Park for these pics – and they knocked our socks off! Check out the carnival goodness, the sweet simplicity of the surroundings, and the joy that exudes from this loving couple. It was a photographer’s dream day – well, not so much for Dan, who had to ride the ferris wheel over and over to get the stunning shots of Darryl and Stef you see below. Motion-sickness and a fear of heights never looked so good, haha.
Well, we hope you enjoy this sneak peek at the shots from their day! Leave us a comment or two to let us know how you feel about the pics!
